I'm getting excited. Imagine what we could do with that 17 mill freed up? I thought there were only a few potential suckers, but it seems like there are more.
Don't get me wrong, Manny is a great, great hitter. But that's all. He's a virus in the clubhouse and a horrible fielder.
Manny hits so great, his defense, or lack of it , is overblown. He was 7th in league in win shares, which incorporates defense. He was only 4 shares short of leader Arod. Everywhere Mannys been, the team has won 90-100 games. I always like the tag virus. Boston fans think they can lose Manny, and score 960 runs again. Mannys one of the 5 top hitters in bb. Walker, Millar, Ortiz, Mueller, Nixon, Varitek all had career years. Losing Manny, and having quite a few of those guys revert to their past, and a great offense now is now above average.
